Excellent lawyer
I want to say thank you to The Skiver Law firm for the time and dedication they provided my husband and I with our case. They treated us with respect and delicately worked with us and the opposing team to meet all of our needs in a short amount of time. Thank you for all your work, and I know that if I ever need your services again I have comfort in knowing that I am in good hands.

Awesome lawyer!
Ryan is the best lawyer I ever had. He was understanding, compassionate, professional and a shark when it came to my lawsuit. He fought tooth and nail for me against insurances companies and big corporations. He always kept me updated on my lawsuit and got me what I wanted. I recommend him to anyone needing representative.

They are professional and compassionate
I lost my brother in a motorcycle accident. He lived in Arizona, I’m in New Hampshire. They helped me and fronted me the cost for my brothers cremation. I can’t thank Ryan and Sergina enough for helping me navigate through a very emotional time. They’ll never know what they did for me... it’s lost in words...

Very personable service
I was unfortunately rear ended with clients in the car, but Ryan Skiver and his staff made resolving the entire ordeal as seamless and stress free as possible. They had excellent communication and followup so luckily we were able to resolve everything pretty quickly.

I couldn't have asked for better representation
Ryan and the Skiver Law Firm team have been professional, supportive and thorough through out the entire process. Someone was always available to answer any questions I had and made sure I had all the facts. I walked away with exactly what I was hoping for and I couldn't be happier with the outcome.

Personal injury - Fantastic Lawyer and Person.
When my wife and I needed an attorney our paths crossed with Ryan Skiver we could not be happier with our choice. Ryan from the beginning genuinely cares about you and your case. He was constantly going above and beyond and was always available if we needed to talk to him. When it came to our long extensive case, Ryan was relentless and determined. Ryan put in a lot of late nights and weekends for us and the outcome of our case showed his commitment. Ryan is very knowledgeable in the field of Law and he always took the time to explain it in layman’s terms you can understand. Another area I was impressed with Ryan, was his ability to be innovative, creative and quick on his feet. If you work with Ryan, you will quickly see what my wife and I experienced. We Highly recommend Ryan Skiver and his team.

Great Attorney!

Personal Injury Settlement
Ryan represented me in a personal injury case that resulted in a $200,000 settlement in my favor. I was rear-ended on the highway which resulted in spine surgery and many months of rehabilitation. I called Ryan from the site of the accident and he walked me through the entire process from start to finish, starting with that initial trip to the hospital all the way through settlement day. In my opinion, Ryan went above and beyond what most attorneys would do for their clients. I was very pleased with the manner in which Ryan negotiated with the defendant's insurance company. He was fair and honest throughout but also firm and aggressive when appropriate. I highly recommend Ryan to anybody in need of a great attorney.
